  1. DECServer 90M+

    Anyone have one laying around they are willing to part with (including
    power supply). I have the older 90M, but it requires a Thin-wire
    connection and apparently the transceiver in the netgear box receives
    only (single uplink port with BNC) and cannot be found any where. And
    no one seems to have the 4-port version even though it is listed on
    their web site.

    I've a 90M and it has a UTP (in addition to the BNC) port.
    Do you perhaps confuse it with a 90TL (no flash, less mem => no DNAS sw)?

    btw: I've never seen a 90M+ on Ebay so far, and pure 90M were often
    (but not always) rated at ridicolous prices (>$400). But all in all
    they are quite rare on ebay...

    All of our 90Ms (sorry all in use and not available) are connected via
    the twisted pair port, several of them connecting to newer managed
    10/100 and even one 10/100/1000Mbit switch. None still use the BNC
    port and only one is installed in a DEChub 90. Look for the twisted
    pair network port at the end by the lights, separate from the eight
    serial ports.

    Agreed that 90Ms have retained their value extraordinarily well, as
    have the flash based DECserver 700s. 90M+ are way over our desire to
    pay these days though we did resell two a few years ago. All the host
    booting units are dirt cheap any more.

    I have a several DECserver 90Ms and all of them have DEChub, thin-wire
    (10base2) and twisted-pair (10baseT) capability. I'm connected to one
    now which is plugged in via the RJ45 twisted-pair jack on its front.

    I have several DS90Ms and I'll let you have one. However, power supplies,
    especially these standalone power supplies, are not as plentiful in my col-

    Power supplies for these do show up on ebay occasionally but they are
    another part that has held on to their value depressingly well. It
    can be cheaper to buy a complete DEChub with additional modules and
    power supply than just the basic volt-on-a-rope for these units.

    We maintain one spare for our customers using these DECservers (and I
    think we paid around $80 for it last year when we had to replace one
    with our then spare) and I can't let it go either.

    Does this unit use the same power supply as the 90L & 90L+ ???

    I might have one available if it does

    What is the part number?

    I believe that it should work. IIRC, only the DECbridge, DECagent and
    perhaps the DECBrouter had different power requirements.

    The ps I have on the current 90L is the H7082-AB - I believe the the
    -AA variant is the same thing except the -AB is 110/240 capable and the
    -AA is 110 only.

    That the one I was using -- H7082.
